Washington, D.C. – National Association of Manufacturers Vice President of Energy and Resources Policy Rachel Jones released the following statement on the EPA’s reforms to how it conducts cost-benefit analysis:
“Our goal at the National Association of Manufacturers is to make our environment and our communities better. The agency’s strengthening of the cost-benefit analysis process will provide clarity and transparency for the American people and allow our members to create high-paying jobs and make investments that will protect our air and water. This initiative will have an immediate positive impact on our country and allow the EPA to get regulations done right the first time.”
The National Association of Manufacturers is the largest manufacturing association in the United States, representing small and large manufacturers in every industrial sector and in all 50 states. Manufacturing employs more than 12.2 million men and women, contributes $2.35 trillion to the U.S. economy annually and has the largest economic multiplier of any major sector and accounts for 62% of private-sector research and development. The NAM is the powerful voice of the manufacturing community and the leading advocate for a policy agenda that helps manufacturers compete in the global economy and create jobs across the United States.
